Atlantic Rally for Cruisers ARC
Las Palmas - St Lucia
This annual trans-Atlantic rally starts in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and ends in Rodney Bay St Lucia, one of the most beautiful islands of the Lesser Antillies. Individual berths are available to take part in the worlds largest trans ocean sailing event. Every year the ARC brings together over 200 yachts from all over the world.
Following a period at the start, which is set aside for preparation, training seminars and ARC social events, the non-stop 2,700 mile passage on the NE trade wind route takes on average between 18 and 24 days. A true Blue Water Ocean Experience!
